I thought something didn't feel quite right. I'm surprised I didn't break out in hives.
I've been going through the motions for the past couple of weeks, and suddenly realized I hadn't actually been on the water for over a week. Between increased hours at work, a weekend soccer tournament, and other distractions, I simply didn't get around to it. Doc and I had a frustrating day on the Poudre just over a week ago on a stretch of water that is normally killer. I notched one really nice brown out of the day, but otherwise it was small stockers.
Snuck out today after work and it was more of the same. The numbers were a little better, at least on a per hour basis. Generally small fish, but I did land a couple of nice, fat little browns.
In the meantime, the pheasant tails are still doing the trick, and I feel like I'm improving on the ties. The top is simply a classic pheasant tail, and the bottom, and I added a bead head and a flashback to the other.
